Got the blade bolts and installed the blades on my brush hog project. I was able to head to a friend's house and cut the roughest field I've ever been in before. His dad usually mows it with an old tired '53 ford golden jubilee with a gas motor but let me mow it this time as a testing ground. The conditions were very wet, thick, thatchy grass and weeds. It took a few tries to get the slip clutch dialed in but once I did she was a cutting machine. Everything worked perfectly and I has horsepower to spare. I could have gone fast if the field wasnt so rutted and rough underneath the vegetation. I even mowed the trails in his woods in time for hunting season once the field was done.

Great job testing out your new brush hog!
Now if you are interested in a real rough cutting area in the Rocky Mountains, I am willing to let you run a test cut on my property, ha.
My property self sharpens the blades while cutting, because we grow those "Rocky Mountain Rocks" here.
